Olivia Wilde addresses the story that Harry Styles spat on Chris Pine
You are spat out of luck if you are looking for evidence that Harry Styles hocked a loogie on his “Don’t Worry Darling” co-star.
While the rumor that Harry Styles spit on Chris Pine at the Venice Film Festival in September has been widely discussed in recent weeks, the film’s director Olivia Wilde has dispelled the rumor.
Wilde stated on September 21 on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” that “Harry did not spit on Chris, in fact.”
Only time will tell,” Colbert added.
To which she said, “No, he really didn’t,”
“People can look at a video that shows evidence of not spitting on someone else and they’ll still see what they want to see and that is the creation of drama and that is clickbait,” Wilde explained
Formerly, Pine’s representative had denied there was any spitting involved.
The spokesperson told “This is a ridiculous story. A complete fabrication and the result of an odd online illusion that is clearly deceiving and allows for foolish speculation. Just to be clear, Harry Styles did NOT spit on Chris Pine … there is nothing but respect between these two men and any suggestion otherwise is a blatant attempt to create drama that simply does not exist.”
When the video of the event became viral, Styles joked about it during a concert in New York City.
“I just popped very quickly to Venice to spit on Chris Pine,” he said with a chuckle.
A lot of rumors and controversy have surrounded the making of “Don’t Worry Darling” which is set for release on September 23. One of these rumors is that Wilde and another star of the film, Florence Pugh, do not get along. Wilde gushed over the actor Stephen Colbert when questioned by Colbert if there was any bad blood between them.
“I have nothing but respect for Florence’s talent. She’s fantastic,” Wilde explained. “She’s on the set of her movie, ‘Dune,’ right now and there’s nothing cooler than a busy actress. I have nothing against her, for any reason.”
Wilde claims she is unfazed by the publicity surrounding the off-screen speculations.
“We made a movie during the pandemic. That’s like building a house in a hurricane, so we can handle a little Twitter storm,”
